Just like all the Greek islands, the currency in Santorini is the Euro. You’ll find places to exchange money in the resort, but we recommend organising some spending money before you leave, so you can start relaxing as soon as you step off the plane. We offer several convenient ways to get your Santorini currency ahead of your holiday, with the option to arrange home delivery, which is free on orders over £500. Alternatively, why not pop in and pick up your currency when you use our reserve and collect service? It makes it easy to pick up your money as part of that last-minute holiday shop.
ATMs are available too, and you’ll find cards are accepted in bigger places. Many smaller and independent businesses will be cash only, and it’s always useful to have a range of Santorini currency for paying for smaller items or tipping. You’ll find your regular debit or credit card is accepted in many places, but we recommend asking your bank how much they charge for transactions abroad. These fees can be quite high and add a lot onto the cost of your holiday. A lot of our travellers find a pre-paid card such as Lyk to be a useful alternative. It’s commission-free, and with no charge for purchases and a flat fee to withdrawal, it’s easy to keep on top of the costs. You can manage your account online, top-up as you go and enjoy the peace of mind of 24-hour support, should your card be lost or stolen.
Whether you like to get your money in resort be prepared and get some money changed up before you go. Our expert team will answer any questions you have about currency in Santorini, and help you organise your holiday spending so you can bask in the beauty of Santorini as soon as you arrive.
